Recently an article was published concerning Madonna’s string of movie flops, but it was written by a Mariah Carey fan! It made me think about the difference between the two artists’s movie careers. Before the fantastic flop “Glitter” Mariah Carey said many times in interviews “This is a lifelong dream/ambition,” “I’ve always wanted to be an actress,” but as soon as her movie flopped she gave up and never returned Hollywood.
Obviously her sole intention was to make money out of it, and when it flopped she no longer had any desire to act again.
Madonna, on the other hand, has been flopping at the box office for years, but keeps on trying despite much criticism. In a way, it paid off because she earned herself a few lukewarm successes and a Golden Globe to boot, even though her flops far outweigh her successes.
In contrast, Madonna truly has a desire to be an actress (even if she cant act) whereas “Mimi” is only interested in making a quick buck. In Hollywood Madonna is clearly the lesser of two evils.
Apple Martin’s A Tiny Fan Of Madonna
January 11, 2006 – Gwyneth Paltrow and her Coldplay hubby Chris Martin have been subjected to listening to Madonna’s ‘Hung Up’ over and over because their 20-month year old daughter Apple demands to her the track. “Apple loves to dance. She absolutely loves Hung Up by ‘Dadonna’ – that’s how she pronounces Madonna,” Paltrow explained. “We have it on repeat in our house. She demands to hear it over and over and over.”
